Prelude

I do not ever

want to leave

this silence

scared me yesterday

prelude of heaven

The Revelation Of Presence

Standard

*

I quiver as the sun
comes back out
from behind the trees

.

I remember being
fifteen drenched in
too many questions

.

boiling over in the
heat of the sunshine
evaporating upward

.

leaving

.

room for silence
to fill each single
gap each crevice

.

.

Possibilities

Standard

*
tall piles of books
tall piles of paper
tall piles of drawings
tall piles of note taking
tall piles of poems scribbled

a few empty jars cleaned out
I live in my ideal city pushed
back in the corner I sit
each title a windows’
line each space

a possibility

.

Asking You

Standard

*

don’t many of us
in this life get the chance
to be human

.
even if for a brief
moment of vulnerability

.
tenderness entwined in
with love and forgiveness
embracing mistakes

.
ours or others
understanding
there are no podiums

.
but one race
just one step
following
the other

.
one person
looking after another

keeping our necks oiled
to turn around

any given time

.
